Chinese have developed an advanced and versatile system of body manipulation over a period of several thousand years. Tui-Na goes beyond conventional massage when dealing with musculoskeletal issues. Tui-Na is a soft tissue manipulation using the hands and fingers to press, push, pull, spot-draw and tremble points along a meridian. These actions help promote balanced flow of Qi and blood within the body and thus treat disease. Specialists are able to treat a wide range of conditions effectively. Stiff neck, spondylopathy, acute lumbar strain, sciatica, lower back pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, arthritis and recovery from injury are a few of the conditions treatable with Tui-Na. Treatments are carried out fully-clothed, usually in a lying or sitting position.
